All About Your Dental Implants in Manahawkin NJ
At Young Dentistry, our main priority is giving our patients a reason to smile. There’s scientific evidence that smiling improves your mood, and even makes others around you happier — but if you’re missing one or more teeth, you may not feel like flashing your pearly whites so often. That’s why dental implants can be so life changing.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are tiny titanium posts that are implanted directly into your gum. You can think of each implant like a tiny golf tee — and your gum is the grass. The bottom of the device supports your new tooth replacement, acting as a prosthetic root. Once the implant has become one with your jawbone, its top is exposed and, much like the top of a golf tee, your new tooth is securely placed on top.
How is Dr. Young qualified to give me my dental implants?
There’s no question about it — if you need dental implants, Dr. Young is the experienced hand you need. Dr. Young completed the full implant dentistry program at the Misch International Implant Institute, as well as the restorative, crown and bridge, esthetic denture and overdenture programs. In addition to that significant education, he’s got more than 30 years’ experience helping our neighbors complete their smiles as a Manahawkin restorative and cosmetic dentist.
Am I a good candidate for the procedure?
If you’re wondering whether or not you’re an excellent candidate for dental implants, know that the following conditions are necessary for successful implantation.
- Existing jawbone structure. When you make your initial appointment, Dr. Young will check to make sure you have adequate existing jawbone structure to support the implants. Sometimes too much degeneration has occurred as a result of tooth loss, and other options must be explored.
- Good oral and gum health. Patients suffering from a gum infection, like periodontitis, are not good candidates for dental implants.
